From the Four Corners' San Juan River to California's lower Colorado, from Death Valley to Canyonlands, from Capitol Reef to the Grand Canyon, Paiutes lived in many small, widespread communities. They still do, but the communities are fewer, smaller, and mostly deprived of the lands and resources that sustained traditional lives. To portray a people and the individuals who comprise it, William Logan Hebner and Michael L. Plyler relay Paiute voices and reveal Paiute faces, creating a space for them to tell their stories and stake claim to who they once were and now are.Hide synopsis

Signed by both the author and the photographer. Southern Paiute territory once extended from the Mojave to the San Juan River and from the Sevier to the Colorado River. The Paiute still live in small communities across this vast expanse, having survived as a people widespread enslavement, virulent diseases, unjustified blame for the Mountain Meadows Massacre, invasion and displacement, unfounded termination of government services, and more. Listening to them, Logan Hebner, “was able to record stories that exist nowhere else in print, interviewing elders who remember tales told to them by their grandparents—taking us right back to the nineteenth century. We listen to the full sweep of tragedy and restoration in the life of this often-neglected Southwestern tribe"-Stephen Trimble.
